One of my favourites, geography seems to be a basic element of quizzes.

I know this sounds like I'm being pedantic... but the outback is not a region of Australia. Not in the same way that all these others are anyway. There's no borders or anything to 'the outback' is basically just a vague notion.

I love this site, but my only minor complaint is that when I take a recently-updated quiz (like this one, apparently) that's still listed with 8,000 quiz takers, my scoring is somehow based only on the people who have taken it since the update. Thus, a score of 19/21 is only good enough for the 25th percentile of quiz takers, because the sample size seems to be 16 (very knowledgeable) people instead of 8,000.

This becomes less of a problem if you just get them all right :) It is an interesting point though, as more people take the quiz, your score could move up (or down) the percentile, but I assume you don't get more points for it, or have them taken away.

Not nearly as bad as when your score gets completely wiped out when they rewrite a quiz.

Agree, and apparently a LOT of quizzes have been reset lately. It seems every time I log on my score is lower than the day before. I don't think I'll ever reach level 73.

We have no official region called 'the outback'. It's just a slang term. Replace it with either Western Australia or Northern Territory, one of the two most desert like states in Australia.

Just as "The Big Apple" is a slang term for new York city, but I bet if it was put in a quiz, 90% of takers would get it. Same for "Outback", it may not be official but that's what people have come to know it as, so CHILL!

Got 'em all with 1:34 left. Lesson #1 is move on to the next clue IMMEDIATELY if you don't know the answer so you have time left to take some educated guesses on the ones you don't know. I was absolutely certain on only about sixteen of these clues.
